Bozic is an American Artist inspired by nature and natural history; working in acrylics, watercolour, mixed media. I can't get enough of her imagery, I think it's fantastic.

Bottom right: Neko Case
I first heard Neko Case's name mentioned in a Buck 65 track. Once it sank in I became curious and now I'm so glad I looked her up on Spotify. (And if you've never listened to Buck 65, for God's sake get on that too.)
Below is a photo by Carson Ellis, off her blog. Too cute and sparkly. :)
